CSK are doing really well in the IPL 2021. Although the current squad is doing well, Chennai Super Kings will most likely upgrade their squad in IPL 2022. The majority of the current team’s stars are nearing the end of their careers. In IPL 2022, there will be a few new signings, as the franchisee must still consider the long term. As a result, there are a plethora of opportunities for CSK to pursue at the IPL mega-auction in 2022.
The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 season was postponed last week by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) after some players and support personnel from some of the teams tested positive for COVID-19. Wriddhiman Saha of Sunrisers Hyderabad and Amit Mishra of Delhi Capitals both tested positive for coronavirus, prompting the announcement. Two cricketers from the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) camp had also tested positive for the virus. The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) also announced that L Balaji, their bowling coach, was positive
In 2018, CSK’s Mark Wood won the trophy as a player. After that season he was released. Wood, on the other hand, has performed admirably for England since then. In the recent T20 series, he caused problems for the Indian batsmen. He’s one of the former players CSK could target at the IPL mega-auction in 2022. Wood would give the bowling department an advantage, particularly when CSK is on the road.
R Ashwin is one of the most talented and experienced spinners. CSK had previously released him. CSK must target him in the mega-auction for the IPL 2022 season. Ashwin would be a smart pick because the team lacks a capable right-arm off-spinner. He’s still a seasoned pro who can enthrall the local crowd.
Sam Billings has performed admirably with CSK in the past. If Faf du Plessis is retained for the IPL 2022 season, the franchise may need a backup option. Sam Billings could be a solid option with a low-price tag. Furthermore, the Englishman can also play as a wicket-keeper.
Baba Aparajith was a member of CSK but did not appear in any games. He is, however, a talented cricketer who can make an impact in the IPL. He has the ability to bat at No. 3 and also bowling a few off-spin overs.
Holder can be a beneficial addition to the team. Holder can be a deadly batsman as well as a decent T20 bowler. In the batting order, he can be seen as a floater. Not to mention the Holder has a track record of success as a leader.
Chris Morris can be the replacement of Dwayne Bravo if he is released. Both players are close in terms of their abilities. On the other hand, Morris has a greater impact with the ball and can bat at any point of a T20 inning.
